Bill Monboquette

The ace of weak Red Sox teams in the early 1960s, Monboquette won at least 14 games four straight years, peaking in 1963 with a 20-10 mark. A four-time All-Star, in 1960 he started the year’s first All-Star Game for the AL, but allowed three home runs in two innings to take the loss. Monboquette relied on changing speeds with good control, but on May 12, 1961, he fanned 17 Senators in a nine-inning game (at the time the second-best effort in AL history). He no-hit the White Sox on August 1, 1962, defeating Early Wynn 1-0, and had a second no-hit bid foiled by a Zoilo Versalles home run in September 1964.
